Teaching Assistant -  Mrs Donaldson

 

Well done Peacock Class for working so hard this year! I hope you all have a fantastic summer holiday and come back ready to learn in Year 5.

 

Mrs Donaldson and I are looking forward to getting to know the new Peacock Class from September.  Our first topic is one of my favourites - the Romans!

 

Upcoming Dates

Friday 20th July - last day of term at 2pm

 

Lullingstone Roman Villa trip - Tuesday 2nd October 

 

 

 PE is  on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.  Children  should have their PE kits in school at all times. Please ensure it is named very clearly. 

 

Homework

Homework will be given out weekly - this term on a Tuesday to be returned by the following Monday. In addition to daily reading, you may like to practise tables (both multiples and division) up to 12x12 at home. 

The children continue to be responsible for completing their reading diaries at home but remind them to bring them into school to receive extra house points. 

 

Spelling and Grammar

The New National Curriculum of English has a greater emphasis on spelling and grammar than previously.  This is proving to be a great challenge to many of the children.  Teaching the children the spelling patterns and rules, as well as grammar, is taking high priority.   If you could help the children learn words from the Year 3/4 spelling list, this would very much help them.  These can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-english-programmes-of-study/national-curriculum-in-england-english-programmes-of-study#years-3-and-4-programme-of-study
